Hadrianus Gate a magnificent archeological triumphal arch from the times of the Roman emperor Hadrianus. This monument astonishingly preserved is one of the main vestiges in Antalya that show the Roman roots of this turkish region. So while many go to Antalya for a nice stay at the seaside, Antalya is much more: history, culture and cuisine. This piece of the roman art bears testimony about legends of Queen of Sheba passing through on her way to visit king Solomon and ther stay at Aspendos.
Antalya is one of the most well known tourist center of Turkey so far. This attracts every entertainment activity close; including extreme sports. Paragliding is one of those which is getting more important. The cliffs that surround Antalya gives enough opportunity to fly over the city and have a great sightseeing while gliding in the summer wind. But just be careful since there are some negligences exist even in professional companies. Never fly without helmet and shoes!
Without doubt Köprülü Kanyon is the most famous rafting course in Turkey. The reason yet unknown if it's about Antalya or the structure of river... The canyon itself is a spectacular place, but only can be seen by the river which is not really makes it easy to do so. There are some parts where the water flow goes crazy! Köprülü Kanyon is always one of the courses used for national rafting tournaments.
Antalya is well known by its tropical climate and summer. But actually, you can live the 2 opposite seasons in one day! Imagine that you can swim in the morning then you can fully cover up and get ready for a cold ski challenge in the afternoon! The way to ski center takes around 2 hours from Saklıkent with a spectacular mountain view; a road that passes through a pine forest.It is really hard to imagine a 2200 meters of height just next to the most famous summer city of Turkey!
It has a beautiful beach' and Taurus mountains nearby.
